San Mateo's Joy Luck (re)Place(ment) confirmed...

During a recent lunch at Little Shanghai San Mateo, my mom spotted one of the Koi Palace captain's (floor managers) and a few staffers at the adjacent table. She went over there to talk to him (he knows her through my uncle) and my mom flat out asked him if KP is taking over the space formerly inhabited by Joy Luck Place, and the answer is yes.

Next, she asked, and was told, that the menu will be different, but they will serve dim sum. So perhaps a Koi Garden clone?

Last, they will be opening next month (when exactly I do not know)

Looking forward to this, and nearby ABC Cafe opening up. HK Causeway Bay across the street better enjoy their short lived monopoly of dim sum + Canto will be stiff competition once Koi whatever Champagne Garden(?) opens up.
